Workshop with Kurt Caswell

December 1, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Before a writer can write effective long-form nonfiction essays and books, she must first master the essay itself. Working in short essay forms allows more opportunity for a writer to practice. A series of in-class writing assignments will start you on this path. You’ll come away from the workshop with drafts of three different short essays, a tool bag of ideas for future work, and some suggestions for submitting your work for publication.

Cost: $115 Gemini Ink Member; $145 Non-Member
